Recovery Processes

  • Mark A. Harwell


In the consequence analyses thus far, we have addressed the human and environmental effects, including the physical and biotic responses to a nuclear war of a scale large enough to cause widespread effects. The atmospheric responses are projected to result in peak reductions in temperature and light after a few weeks. Climatic changes would gradually return to pre-nuclear war conditions over a period of several years. There is no compelling reason to believe the atmosphere would not essentially recover after a decade or so post-war.
